Cicada Cyclist

What’s this bug?
I found this bug on my bicycle in Queens, NY.
Thank you.

Hi Linda,
Did this happen over night or have you been neglecting your bike riding? We can only guess your bike was parked near a tree to have a Cicada dig its way out of the dirt, climb your bicycle and split its skin to fly away as a winged adult that is buzzing loudly in the trees.
